JULY 2, 2014—Marine Log is proud to announce that Anthony Chiarello, President & CEO TOTE, Inc., will provide the keynote address at its ALL ABOUT MARINE Conference & Expo, which is scheduled for Sept. 4, 2014.

“We’re very excited to have Mr. Chiarello keynote this new conference,” said John R. Snyder, Publisher & Editor in Chief, Marine Log. “The Saltchuk organization, TOTE and Mr. Chiarello have all shown strong leadership in pushing the best practices and best technologies in not only the Jones Act trade, but also the global shipping market. TOTE is the vanguard of environmental stewardship, with its construction of the world’s first LNG-powered containerships. I can think of no better marine executive to deliver the keynote address for ALL ABOUT MARINE. “

A long-time industry veteran and a fourth generation member of the shipping and logistics community, Chiarello was one of 11 transportation executives honored in 2014 as a “Champion of Change” by the White House. TOTE is not only building the first LNG-fueled containerships for the Puerto Rico trade, but also investing in converting two of its existing ships to burn LNG for the Alaska trade.

Chiarello was also recently selected by The Marine Society of New York as the 2014 Marine Society Honoree.

TOTE’s parent, Saltchuk, one of the nation’s leading freight transportation and distribution companies, has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute, an independent center of research promoting best practices in corporate ethics and governance, as a 2014 World’s Most Ethical Company. This is the first time that Saltchuk has been considered for this award, which recognizes organizations that continue to raise the bar on ethical leadership and corporate behavior. Saltchuk is one of only three companies in the transportation and logistics industry honored this year.

All About Marine will include four tracks: All About LNG, All About Shipyards, All About The Jones Act, and All About Environmental Compliance. The conferences will occur simultaneously, but will share common coffee and energy breaks, a luncheon, and a cocktail reception.

“For one price, delegates will be able to attend any of the sessions and conference social functions, as well as view all of the table top exhibits at the common expo,” said Snyder.  “It will not only maximize information exchange and discussion, but also the networking opportunities.”

Each one-day conference will provide practical real world advice and discussion, with insightful presentations from some of the foremost experts in their respective fields. Whether you are interested in LNG as a marine fuel, opportunities in the Jones Act trade, regulatory compliance issues such as ballast water discharge, or best safety practices at shipyards, you’ll find the answers at All About Marine.

Further announcements regarding the conferences tracks will be released shortly on marinelog.com/events. Additionally, details regarding registration, exhibition, and sponsorship, are available by contacting conferences@sbpub.com or 212-620-7208.
